Classic PC Games

Take a step back in time and revisit your favorite DOS and Windows games. The files available in this collection consist primarily of PC demos, freeware, and shareware. These files are the original releases which will require intermediate to advanced knowledge to install and run on modern operating systems. If you would rather simply try some classic MS-DOS games inside your browser you may wish to try the online MS-DOS Software Library. New games are added to this collection on a weekly basis.

Specific news regarding major updates can be found on our website Demu.

If you are the copyright holder of a classic computer game and would like the full version of your work to appear in the archive please e-mail me at swizzle@demu.org. I'm also more than happy to answer questions and fill requests.

Compatibility Information
The majority of these games will not run correctly on modern operating systems. For DOS titles you will need to use DOSBox. You can find an easy to follow DOSBox tutorial here.

Most Windows titles will need to be run through Windows Virtual PC under the appropriate version of Windows for full functionality. Some titles may *mostly* work by simply configuring them to use a compatibility mode.

If you are running Linux, BSD, Solaris or Mac OS X, Wine will run most of the older Windows based software (and DOSBox).

"Programs for young children are hard to find. They must be extremely simple to use, very colorful and attractive, and they need to be fun and free of negative rewards.

In addition to being frustrated with the family computer, Amy's birthday came on September 8, forcing her to wait almost a year longer than some of her friends...

The Mother Goose Game has been developed with the goal of stimulating children's skills in reading, memory, and in the use of the computer keyboard. The child reads a rhyme, supplies the word that is missing, and then enters that word via the keyboard. I have tried to place these activities in a colorful and interesting environment while leaving the emphasis on the activity rather than on the environment. The program requires that you have a CGA or better video adaptor.

Due to the layout of the ABC Learn program, the 123 Learn program can go up to 28 numbers. This program has colors and noises to help keep the attention of most kids.

Your job is of course to get the help they need there, and...

After the pop, a rainbow is drawn and the first line of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" is...
